Short Term Foster Placements
We provide this most frequent type of placement required by our local authority partners, whilst they assess how best to meet the child’s needs in the future. We work in partnership to support plans to return the child home, move into longer term placement or permanency/adoption.
We can offer placements for children in emergencies where the need for urgent action is required to make a child safe. Our on-call team will respond to out of hours referrals from our local authority partners.
Long Term/Permanent Foster Placements
We support choices for carers to become adopters or Special Guardians for a child in their care as a positive outcome. We also recognise that a child’s needs can be better met within a long term foster placement and we support our carers to provide this commitment.
